XGB: MainTitle: Boggart by filbarlow XGB: MainTitle: Boggart by filbarlow
Here is the Boggart that I designed for the introduction of Extreme Ghostbusters animation back in 1987. My pencil design was inked by Helen Maier, who was an invaluable member of my Character Design team.

I liked the Boggart design so much that I reused him in episode #115 "Grease" (this was the episode production number not the order that it was aired).

Always loved him! What can possibly be better than Gremlin (i know it's not but back in that period i loved every little nasty creature with big ears and was calling them gremlins) riding a fish!
A flying ghost fish! He using it as a turbo bike or something. It's almost as cool as that "train ghost with spiky wheel".

Yeah I wish that he'd been on the screen for longer.

"Boggart"? Nice nod to folklore!

Was there a name for the dude he's riding on?

He never got named :(
Any suggestions?

Maybe mixing that with a fish like sardines, maybe Sylphine, or dolphins, Sylphon?

Those are both great ideas, hard for me to pick one. Sylphon has a slighter better ring to it, imo.
